Maybe a no.

I've got superlows as well, and get some scrubbing. If I was going for a show car, then yeah, ultras would be the go. But as I like to through mine around mountains and tracks, supers is it (for up front).

and yeah, if you want to use them, you'll definatly want new shocks, you'll end up causing damage otherwise.

Why would different diameter wheels make a difference. The tyre's profiles would be different to make the same rolling circumference - ie. the tyre is still the same size on the outside.

Different WIDTH wheels/tyres however will make a difference. eg. going from 15x6.5s to 17x8s.
